Bullish calls:

TD Ameritrade (NASDAQ:AMTD): 'I think the numbers are really going to be big there.'
Nuvelo (NUVO)
Arena Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ARNA): 'I like NUVO, but not as much as I like ARNA!'
Halliburton (NYSE:HAL): 'When the Oil Services HOLDRs (NYSEARCA:OIH), which includes HAL goes to $115, I will indeed pull multiple triggers on HAL.'
Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD): 'It's at $4.71. This is the only drug stock right now that is hugely speculative.'
Walgreen (WAG)
IntraLase (ILSE): 'I like anything that makes it so that we see better, that we look better, that we are better ... Big study just came out in the New England Journal of Medicine. Macular degeneration - two thumbs up.'
United Auto Group (NYSEARCA:UAG): 'That stock pays rent on the 52-week high. UAG is run by Roger Penske, who may be one of the best executives - not just auto executives - in the world.'
Qwest Communications (NYSE:Q): 'I would swap into Q.'
Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD): 'I am betting that Eddie Lampert [CEO] can do the same thing (as Berkshire Hathaway). I think that Eddie Lampert knows what he's doing. I would recommend that stock even to octogenarians.'
BT Group (NYSE:BT): 'The old British Tel - Oh, man. 5% yield or more. I should have done the dividend thing, but that was all American.'
International Game Technology (NYSE:IGT): 'You know I like IGT.'
Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN): 'Your stock's an up stock.'
Genentech (Private:DNA)
Toyota (NYSE:TM): 'Don't forget Toyota, going to $125.'

Bearish calls:

Old Dominion Freight Line (NASDAQ:ODFL): 'You come to me with a trucking company? One of the only groups that I don't like right here?'
Energy Conversion Devices (NASDAQ:ENER): 'I don't like the alternative energy stocks right here.'
Tyco International (NYSE:TYC): 'That is a proverbial wet blanket on a bull. You don't want to be in TYC ... TYC does not have any earnings momentum by the way.'
Rentech (NYSEMKT:RTK): 'You can't be backing up the truck on RTK! You know what I think about alternative energy here!'
Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS): '... got a huge gain yesterday! Bulls make money, bears make money and hogs get slaughtered! You must ring the register right now. I demand that you hang up, shut up, get off, sell SWKS.'
J2 Global Communications (NASDAQ:JCOM)
Quest Diagnostics (NYSE:DGX): 'DGX is overpricing its work, and it should stop it. And I think that DGX is going to keep losing business now. And, by the way, I was wrong on DGX.'
JDSU (JDSU): 'I wish that there was a button for quadruple sell ... You know, they're doing a big reverse split. That will be a good chance to leave it as people get faked out of their shorts, thinking the stock is going up. It hasn't.'
Broadcom (BRCM): ' I see a potential for a shortfall there ... get out of it and then buy it at $24, where I think it's headed.'
Shuffle Master Inc. (NASDAQ:SHFL) : 'What are you, a worst of breed guy? You know I like IGT.'
Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX): 'Oh c'mon, man. What are you doing? Speculating? I don't need you speculating. Ring the register.'
